Ask Stephen Hawking Anything in His First Reddit AMA.

The Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) series has seen plenty of cool science celebrities as guests, including Neil deGrasse Tyson and Bill Nye. English cosmologist, physicist, and Director of Research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology at the University of Cambridge, Stephen William Hawking, is supposed to hold a question and answer session on Reddit.If you have a question that you would like to ask someone who is considered to be among the smartest humans on the planet then you need to mark the date July 27th on your calendar because Stephen Hawking is going to be answering questions from the public at 8 am ET on his 1st Reddit Ask Me Anything (AMA).

This much awaited celebration would kick-start on Monday, July 27, 2015 at 6:00 am ET and Stephen Hawking, that is essentially the most teeming and popular experts of record would decide to respond to the tasks slung via the general public. It is high-time for Hawking to hold this sort of celebration plus the week-long Fakat was produced prolonged to make ready for the hold ups in internet and telephone as Hawking… Even though this extended AMA is wonderful news for people who may not make it on Monday, it is also required by Hawking since this world renowned scientist takes a little while to compose his answers with the help of his Intel-powered computer system. It’s a way to let the 73-year-old Hawking — who was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) when he was 21 — take his time answering questions. Hawking is said to be interested in discussing his thoughts on AI, particularly in relation to the letter that he, Elon Musk, and other major technology figures signed warning that artificial intelligence needs safeguards in order to remain within human control.

This event is actually one of Wired and Nokia’s #MakeTechHuman initiatives which endeavor to whip up discussion that will inevitably benefit mankind. Hawking is also reportedly tempted to discuss his fears with artificial intelligence, which he states as, “potentially our greatest mistake in history.” Recently, Stephen Hawking has made waves with other views on Artificial Intelligence, which is backed a quest to discover aliens resident in other star systems.

A lot of people are wondering why Professor Hawking has been allowed to have such a long ‘Ask Me Anything’ – it is due to the amount of time that it takes for him to answer questions due to his slower communication method.
